1. Cookies statement
1.1. About cookies
Websites use clever and useful techniques to make them more user-friendly and as interesting as possible for each visitor. Cookies are one of the best known such techniques. Cookies can be used by website owners or third parties, such as advertisers, who communicate via the website you are visiting.
Cookies are small text files that websites store on users’ computers. The information contained in cookies can also be used to track your browsing on different websites that use the same cookie.
Cookies can be classified by their lifetime and their source.
We believe it is essential to provide you with information on the cookies used on our website and their purpose. Our aim is three-fold: to guarantee your privacy, to make our website more user-friendly and to ensure its development. The following information tells you more about the cookies used on our website and their purpose.
3. Cookies and how they work
Nous utilisons différents types de cookies en fonction de leur finalité.
Vous trouverez ci-dessous une liste des cookies les plus courants ainsi qu’une description de leur finalité.
3.1. Session cookies
Session cookies are temporarily stored in your computer’s memory while you are visiting a website. Session cookies are not stored on your computer for long periods of time, and disappear as soon as you close your web browser.
3.2. First-party cookies
These cookies are set by the website you are visiting (the domain that figures in the browser address bar), and can only be read by that site. These cookies are generally used to store information, such as your preferences, which will be used the next time you visit the website.
3.3. Third-party cookies
Third-party cookies are set by a different domain to that shown in the browser address bar, i.e. by an organisation other than the website owner.
For instance, cookies used to record web statistics may be third-party cookies.
As third-party cookies make it possible to generate more detailed searches on user browsing habits, they are deemed to be more sensitive in terms of integrity. For this reason, most web browsers allow you to adjust your settings to block third-party cookies.
4. Cookie management
4.1. Cookie display
Since cookies are simple text files, they can be viewed with most text editors or word processing programs. You can open a cookie by clicking on it. The list below explains how to display cookies in different browsers. If you are using a browser that is not listed here, please check the cookie information specific to your browser. If you are using a mobile phone, please refer to its user guide for more information.
4.2. Enabling/disabling or deleting cookies
To restrict or block cookies, you will need to access your browser settings.
If you do not want websites to place cookies on your computer, you can adjust your browser settings to notify you before a cookie is installed. You can also adjust your settings to block all cookies, or only third-party cookies. Likewise, you can remove any cookie already placed on your computer. Remember that you will need to choose the settings separately for each browser and for each computer you use.
Please be aware that if you block cookies, we cannot guarantee that our website will function correctly. Some site features may be inaccessible and you may no longer be able to access certain websites.
Every browser has a different method for changing the settings. Refer to your browser’s help function, where available, to choose the appropriate settings.
To disable cookies on your mobile phone, please refer to your phone’s user guide for more information.
5. Other/unforeseen cookies
Given the way the internet and websites work, we do not always have information on the cookies installed by third parties on our website. This especially applies when a webpage contains so-called embedded elements, in particular texts, documents, images or video clips that are stored on a third-party site, but are visible on or via our website.
Should you come across any such cookies on this website that we have not listed above, please let us know. You may also directly contact the relevant third party to request more information on the cookies they install, their reason for doing so, the cookie’s life span, and how they guarantee your privacy.
This statement may be amended periodically, due to changes made to our website or regulations relating to cookies. We are entitled to amend the content of this statement, as well as the cookies listed, at any time and without prior notice. Please refer to this webpage for the latest version.
If you have queries or remarks, please contact us.
